I'm floating on air.

Queer youth advocate, Wikipedian, WikiQueerian, policy wonk, tech geek, Episcopalian & video gamer - among other things I'm sure I could add if I was a bigger fan of writing about myself. Face-grin expert.svg

The Aequalitas Project
The Aequalitas Project is a nonprofit organization serving as an incubator for new progressive programs that show great potential. The Aequalitas Project focuses on the ideas which show promise and takes them from early development stages to programs sustainable over the long-term.
Support WikiQueer
The history being made in New York, challenges brewing in California, threats growing in Michigan, progress being made in our nation's capital, exciting news that public acceptance of same-sex marriage is on the rise paired with tragic news that one in four queer youth are homeless - all leave me increasingly confident that the time is right, maybe even past due, for WikiQueer.

However, the extent of WikiQueer's success depends on individuals such as yourself. Without the support of volunteers, donors, vendors, organizations and leaders - WikiQueer will not gain the momentum to reach its full potential. For our part, The Aequalitas Project, WikiQueer Global Advisors and Content Partners are committed to seeing this endeavor through. On the date of WikiQueer's soft launch, over 11,000 pages - consuming almost 350MB of database space - were prepared to assist you with things like creating new articles, seeking help, using templates and respecting copyrights. Now it's up to you to join us with contributions of your time, knowledge, talent and dollars.
